Frigidaire 10,000 BTU 115-volt Window-Mounted Compact Air Conditioner (with remote) for $279 on Amazon

Amazon also has this Frigidaire 10,000 BTU 115-volt Window-Mounted Compact Air Conditioner with Remote Control (model #FFRA1022R1) for $279.00 with free Prime shipping.  It also got 4.0 out of 5 stars over 197 customer reviews and is an "Amazon's Choice" item.
  • 10,000 BTU compact air conditioner for window-mounted installation uses standard 115V electrical outlet (Window mounting kit included)
  • Quickly cools a room up to 450 sq. ft. with dehumidification up to 2.7 pints per hour
  • Multi-speed electronic controls with 24-hr. on/off timer and full-function remote control
  • Auto cool, Energy Saver mode, Sleep mode, fresh air vent, exhaust control, 8-way air direction and washable mesh filter with check filter alert
  • Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER): 10.9
When buying an air conditioner, make sure you match up the size of the room to the number of BTUs of the unit. These are the recommended BTU's for a given cooling area from Consumer Reports:
  • Small room: 5,000 - 6,000 BTU for 100-300 sq. ft. 
  • Medium room: 7,000 - 8,200 BTU for 250-550 sq. ft. 
  • Large room: 9,800 to 12,500 BTU's for 350-950 sq. ft. area.
When buying an air conditioner unit, I like to stick to well-known brand names like Frigidaire, LG, or Freidrich.  Buying one online at places like Amazon has the huge advantage of free Prime shipping for a very heavy item. When you buy an air conditioner from a store, you usually have to haul it home yourself or pay a substantial delivery fee. (But conversely, make sure that when you buy one online, you really want it, because unless it arrives damaged or not working, you will have to pay return shipping.)
